Bhatkal: It is certainly common that people are afraid with the continues increase of Coronavirus cases in Bhatkal taluk. Citizens of Bhatkal should not get panicked, but has to be cautious," said Dr. Hanif Shabab, an executive member of Majlise Islah Wa Tanzeem, Bhatkal.

He was speaking at a press conference here at the Tanzeem office on Tuesday. He said, we are now entering the third stage of Coronavirus in Bhatkal. We were successful in controlling the first and second stage. Now with the relaxation of lockdown, the cases in the third stage are increasing more frequently due to the contacts of one another. Lockdown is not the only solution to overcome this, we can control this by maintaining and strictly following the safety measures. Like all other diseases, we now need to learn to live with this virus too. What we have to fear is not about death, we need to be afraid that the infection does not spread to others, he noted.

Further speaking, another executive member of Tanzeem, Adv. Imran Lanka, said, during first stage in March, we witnessed nine cases of Corona positive, while during the second phase in May, we witnessed 40 cases. But now we have reached the third stage from July 1st week with the highest number of cases. In this regard, Tanzeem is actively working along with District and Taluka administration in raising awareness among the people. With the support and cooperation from public and the administration, we have successfully battled the second stage of Coronavirus in Bhatkal. Now the third phase has to be overcome. Lockdown is not the only solution. Everyone needs to act responsibly and consciously, he added.
